FireAero 3-wheeler still ticking in 2006

Yes, this is the same FireAero that I posted last time, but this time it’s 2006, and last time it was 1999 — this is one of the “regulars” of the Carlisle show, and one of my favorite cars there so I was very happy to get to see it in person and get to meet the owners who use this as their travel vehicle (note the trailer of course).

From the car’s info sheet: The FireAero Cycle Car was a kit (no longer manufactured) out of California made from 1983 to 1989 in two generations. It is believed that five to seven of the first generation were made, and about a dozen of the second generation. The kit sold for about $5000, and used parts from a Pinto for the front end, a Honda Gold Wing (1982) to power it, a modified 15″ VW wheel at the back, tied together with a custom chassis.

You can contact the owner, Thomas Ingram, at FireAero1@aol.com (tell him you saw him on PriceOfHisToys if you do!).
